Leonard (Big Guy) Legault
Aug 14, 1932 - May 4, 2013
It is with saddened hearts the family announces the passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Len Legault. He was predeceased by his daughter Michelle Newton, parents Leo and Pearl Legault and sister Joanne Sullivan. He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his devoted wife of 55 years, Gloria, daughters Andrea Legault and Lynn (Garry) Hodel, grandchildren, Cole Heglin, Ian Newton and Nadine Heglin, great grandchild Aizlynn Gariepy, brothers Ken (Doris) Legault and Ray (Freddie) Legault, sister Jacki Brick, and numerous nieces, nephews and close friends. Len was born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario and through a football scholarship went on to Kansas State and played College ball while working towards his degree. In 1957 he was picked up by the Saskatchewan Roughriders where he played until 1965. While with the Riders, he began his teaching career at Thom Collegiate where he taught for 29 years. He retired in 1992 and spent his time working on various projects. He loved to spend time at the cottage playing cards and enjoying the company of good friends and family. Although he was known for his toughness in football and school, underneath he was a kind and gentle man. His biggest joy in his life was his family. The family will hold a private graveside service. Flowers graciously declined. Donations in memory of Len may be made to the charity of one's choice. The family extends heartfelt thanks to Dr. Michael Dickson, the caregivers on 3E at the General Hospital and to the wonderful nurses at the Palliative Care ward at the Pasqua hospital for the kindness and exceptional care given to Len.
